Psyence Biomedical Ltd. Receives Nasdaq Notifications

NEW YORK, March 15, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Psyence Biomedical Ltd. (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: PBM) announced that on March 11, 2024, it received two letters from the listing qualifications department staff of The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”), one notifying the Company (the “MVLS Notice”) that for the last 30 consecutive business days, the Company’s Market Value of Listed Securities (“MVLS”) was below the minimum of $50 million required for continued listing on the Nasdaq Global Market pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(b)(2)(A) (the “Market Value Standard”), and the other notifying the Company (the “MVPHS Notice”) that for the last 30 consecutive business days, the Company’s Market Value of Publicly Held Shares (“MVPHS”) was below the minimum of $15 million required for continued listing on the Nasdaq Global Market pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(b)(2)(C) (the “MVPHS Standard”).

The MVLS Notice and the MVPHS Notice are only notifications of deficiencies and have no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s securities. The Company’s securities continue to trade on Nasdaq.

In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(C), the Company has 180 calendar days, or until September 9, 2024, to regain compliance with the Market Value Standard and the MVPHS Standard. The MVLS Notice states that to regain compliance, the Company’s MVLS must close at $50 million or more for a minimum of ten consecutive business days during the compliance period ending September 9, 2024, at which time Nasdaq will provide written notification that the Company has achieved compliance under the Market Value Standard and the matter will be closed. The MVPHS Notice states that to regain compliance, the Company’s MVPHS must close at $15 million or more for a minimum of ten consecutive business days during the compliance period ending September 9, 2024, at which time Nasdaq will provide written notification that the Company has achieved compliance under the MVPHS Standard and the matter will be closed.

The Company intends to actively monitor its MVLS and MVPHS and will evaluate available options to regain compliance with the Nasdaq continued listing standards. However, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to regain compliance under the Market Value Standard and the MVPHS Standard, or will otherwise be in compliance with other Nasdaq listing criteria.
